Illustrator Jason Polan is an artist on a quest to make an illustration out of everyone in New York. Yes, all 8.4 million of them 鈥 quite a noble pursuit. Where does he do his portraits? Well, everywhere from the subway to Times Square to coffee shops to Central Park. Sometimes he draws individuals, sometimes groups and every once in a while, if you鈥檙e really, really lucky, he鈥檒l design some shoes 鈥 like this collaboration with Soludos. His crafty, quirky drawings can grace your feet all summer long.
